Dials- School Girl 7”. The Dials are a Japanese band I can get into, meaning they're an actual punk band and not one of the legions of powerpop worshippers that’s been coming out of Japan these days. "School Girl" is a bass heavy ripper with some serious guitar action. It has a real cool '78 style punk sound with a great handclap part and a searing guitar tone for a Japanese band without Fink in it. "Nervous" brings us another shredder with a razor sharp guitar solo and an unbeatable rhythm section. The Dials make a nice modernization of the classic Japanese invasion sound of the Nineties. Recommended for those who still scour the Recordshop Base catalog on the regular. Looking forward to hearing more from this band. My only gripe with this single is I wish it were longer. Recommended.
